Statistic about online dating
For instance, 30% of Tinder users are married and 12% are in a relationship.
Mental illness can play a role in some of these behaviors, and people often do bad things when they’ve been hurt (emotionally, psychologically, or physically).
We mentioned earlier that a majority of people have admitted to lying on their dating profiles, and we’ve found what they tend to lie about varies based on gender.
That same Psychology Today article says that women are more likely than men to lie about their age and appearance.
These lies can come in the form of using a photo that was taken years ago or selecting a different body type than what they actually are (e.g., slender instead of curvy).
It’s not just the women who are liars — men seem to have trouble with the truth as well.
